Olympians Bring Home Medals

The Newton Special Olympics Team competed at the State Summer games in Arlington, Texas on the campus of University of Texas at Arlington.  Athletes were Keandra Kenebrew, Vivian Siau, Tyler Smith, Joseph Craft, Chris McCain, Blair Mulhollan, Jonathan Siau and Samantha Meek.  Unified Partners for the team were Taylor Everit, Shayln Saylor, Bryce Foster and Lakendrick Adams.

Thank you to everyone who came out to the square on Thursday and sent our team off in style.  We have great kids and parents and the athletes performed wonderfully.  This is our 3rd year to take a team and this year there was about 35 athletes, parents and fans represen-ting Newton.  The event is one of the largest Special Olympics of Texas held with 3,900 athletes competing in several different events including Track and Field, Basketball, and Cycling.  Without the help of NISD, donations by the community, all the parents, sponsors and coaches, this trip would not be possible.  Thank you NEWTON for the tremendous support you have shown.
